Final Day – Sunday and after after party
It’s bad that I don’t actually remember getting up on the Sunday…-racks brain-…oh yes, we were late. Both Sam and I were pretty exhausted after the Karaoke on Saturday night. We set our alarms for 6 am like the other days, the only problem was, we kept hitting snooze. Whoops.
The hall opened late, it was supposed to open at 8:30am, but I’m pretty sure I remember it opening at like 9am. And luckily we managed to get the exact same seats as the previous day. GOOD SEATS. Although we felt a LOT closer to the stage than before, which I’m sure we were.
I’d like to take a moment to appreciate the tech guys, their humour was on point this weekend. I’m pretty sure this happened after the announcements were made and the famous Flash was left to entertain us whilst we waited.
It had the entire hall laughing. So thanks for that tech team.
The first panel of the day was Richard and Matt:
Richard did his Matt impression again, this time with Matt in the room, and Matt just stood there and laughed at his friend, we of course, all joined in.
After that panel it was the panel of kick ass girls – Amy, Lindsey and Nicki. I didn’t get ANY photos from this panel and I’m almost ashamed of myself because of this. At one point someone got a hug from Nicki and then somehow the whole panel turned into this huge hug fest. People from the audience came down to the stage and everybody just hugged it out with Amy, Lindsey and Nicki. I stayed sat firmly in my seat because I didn’t wanna go up looking like death rolled over with my cold, or passing it over to other people.
There was a small break next, before Richard had his other panel by himself. In the previous panel of his, I forgot to mention that something happened in the audience that made everyone laugh, and apparently some prank had happened but not everyone could see it. This time though, during Richard’s panel, the photography girl arrived, duct taped to a chair, carried by two other people and placed in the middle of the stage.
I don’t have any other photos, but Richard kept feeding her sweets, and banana’s as he answered questions, eventually another banana was thrown on stage and the hostage was told she could leave if she was able to eat it by herself. (remember her hands were taped together and she couldn’t lift them because of this). We all watched with anticipation until she did it, the audience cheered and she was allowed to be set free into the world.
And the drama didn’t stop there, next Timothy gatecrashed Richard’s panel and sat in the audience, eventually he came up on stage.
They exchanged the usual banter, and Tim looked down at the chair with sweets, banana skins, and duct tape, pointed at it and looked at everyone weirdly before proclaiming that what Richard does in his panels is up to him, but basically that crap is weird.
It was probably one of the funniest panels there was.
During lunch there were some schedule changes, and opportunities to get some more photo ops after lunch break. My lovely friend Lauren asked if I wanted to come into her photo op and so I did. It was nice to get a big squishy Matt hug. So thank you Lauren!!
Bad photo of a photo but you get the idea
The other panels I spent mainly just listening to. It was nice just to sit and listen to the Q and A’s, and general talks.
Before I knew it, the closing ceremony arrived and my friends and I were quite tearful thanks to more emotional speeches, especially from Matt Cohen, Amy Gumenick, and Richard Speight Jr.
After the guests left they auctioned off a signed banner from all the guest stars, and that sold for over £300!!! That concluded the convention, some people left, the guest stars all got waved off by everyone apparently when they left the hotel, I unfortunately chose to go to my room and get ready for the evening’s activities.
After After Party
In the past the after after party has included copious amounts of alcohol and games of Card Against Humanity, it’s usually organized by the beautiful Evelyn.
After getting some food and going on the monorail FOR THE FIRST TIME(!!), the party had begun.
This time the After After Party had quite a few people. It consisted of two separate games of Cards Against Humanity, a smaller group and a larger group. And as we all sat playing and talking, we each looked at the star’s twitter accounts as they had a tweet spree of photos and status’ from the convention. Then one of my friends burst out laughing, I got a tweet from the lovely Sian, and then I realized Timothy had tweeted a photo.
In the bottom right of the screen is my face, just poking through the crowd. Lovely. And quite frankly, hilarious.
Then to top it all off Sophie’s tweet (yeah we have a lot of Sophie’s at the con), was retweeted by Richard and her phone froze from all the notifications.
Which again I laughed at, since that tweet it’s gotten over 1.1k favourites and Rob has replied saying how heartbroken he is :L After Cards Against Humanity, and after a few people left to go sleep, we sort of just chilled and I drew a fabby picture of Richard Speight Jr.
Don’t judge me it’s amazing (plus this was at like 1am).
After a quiet sit down we all decided to go to bed, and once again I vlogged from the Hilton sheets.
The day after the con is always depressing. Post Con Blues hit us and we were feeling a little low, but at the same time high too, we’d all had an amazing time and it’s these kind of memories that will never leave us, they’ll stay with us for a lifetime.
Thanks to everyone newbies and veteran’s, for making the experience amazing. You’re all awesome and I can’t wait to see most of you at Asylum 14!!
Until next time, catch ya later Bromigo’s x.
